Security & Agility: Yin and Yang
Security and agility are often viewed as opposing forces. While there are new influences encouraging both dev and ops to build security in, security is all too often thought of as holding back progress rather than propelling it forward. Helping to shatter this myth, this paper will discuss why security and agility should be thought of like yin and yang – complementary ideas that are interconnected and support one another.
Security is not optional
Cyber threats have shaken the headlines lately. From ransomware to DDoS attacks, security incidents are on the rise. In 2016, IDG detected 38% more cybersecurity incidents than the year prior. And, the cost of these incidents is on the rise as well, with the global cost of cybercrime predicted to reach $2 trillion by 2019, from $500 billion in 2015. IBM’s Ginni Rometty summed it best when she said, “Cybercrime is the greatest threat to every company in the world.”
